Rescue Me ID: 17-07-16-00324Bella (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Cats 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Bella is very playful and has a lot of energy. She prefers full attention and will get dominant over her human if another animal is around. Bella has food aggression so she does not eat treats because she will just guard it. She eats her two meals daily in her kennel because of this. She needs someone that has time to work with her. She does not get a lot of play time because of busy work schedule and I have not surrendered her for fear she would be put down due to aggression.

Rescue Me ID: 17-06-30-00058Karma (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Looking for an active canine companion who is just as keen on walking for miles as she is on snuggling up with her people? Meet Karma, a beautiful reddish-brown 60 pound Boxer/Pit mix who has great house manners, enjoys the company of other dogs, and is always seeking to please her human. She is approximately 2 years young, has been spayed, is up to date on her vaccinations, and will be micro-chipped prior to her adoption. Karma arrived in foster care at the very end of March and has since stolen many hearts, both young and old. She looks to spend her days near her person by cuddling up at one's feet or on a dog bed nearby. She is crate ... (Read More)trained, potty trained, knows basic commands, and understands 'settle' in those moments when she is creeping toward excitability. It is because she is a strong girl and can easily excite if the energy in her home is high, that we are asking that families with children younger than 10 not consider her, as she can easily and inadvertently knock a child over and/or jump up if the environment isn't promoting calm. Karma enjoys the company of her three fur foster siblings and seems more relaxed when they are nearby so we are seeking to place her with a family who has at least one friendly and well-mannered dog. She is quite the athlete and jumper so low fenced in properties would not contain her in those moments when she spots squirrels, birds, and other small creatures that prey driven dogs want to hunt/chase. It is this strong prey drive in Karma that forbids her from living with cats, but small dogs with the right temperament are not an issue for her currently because one of her foster fur siblings is a 10 pound chi/dachshund mix. Karma can be timid when meeting new people, therefore, consistent leadership will be an important part of her daily living. She walks on leash (she is not an off-leash/dog park dog) at one's knee with confidence and responds well to the 'leave it' command if she sees prey and/or other dogs who are approaching while out and about. If you are looking for a big hearted, sensitive, dog loving, and athletic companion, and would like to meet Karma, please go to www.pottersangelsrescue.org to fill out an application. To adopt, please submit an application at this ink: http://form.jotform.com/ form/11880935459 or visit www.pottersangelsrescue. org to view additional adoptable dogs and for more information. Adoption fees apply and vary by age: Under 1 year $350; 1-5 years $300; 6-8 years $200; and Over 8 years by donation. Thank you. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 17-06-30-00054Neeley (female)

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Meet Neeley. Neeley is a 35lb 8 month-old female Pit-mix. She is spayed, vaccinated and micro-chipped. And, Neeley is on a roll! You may not guess when you meet her, but Neeley was a frightened pup when she first entered her Vermont foster home. Initially she startled at any noise or movement. Neeley had to be introduced to balls and other toys, and the entire concept of 'play.' Well, Neeley is a quick study . . . So now, she is working on learning to regulate her desire to play. Her foster people have an older dog and they are careful to separate the two when Neeley becomes overly excited. She is still experiencing what it means to be a ... (Read More)puppy. But, Neeley is doing well learning that her mouth can hurt while playing, so she is using her paws more and more, instead. She really wants to please. Neeley has made vast improvements with controlling her level of play-she responds to commands and redirection techniques. But, when she reaches a certain level, separation is the best response so she has time to completely calm down. However, Neeley and her foster-sibling eat together, sleep together and walk together, very well. At this stage in her development, Neeley would be a perfect companion in a home with no other dogs. Neeley has seen cats from a distance and watched with non-reactive curiosity-but has not been cat-tested in a home setting. Neeley is great with her foster parent's 11 year-old grandson. She would do well living with children of this age. With her current excitability and desire for non-stop play, she should be closely monitored around younger children, and probably not with toddlers, yet. She walks and jogs well on leash, wearing a harness. She shows no signs of wanting to run or roam away from home-preferring to keep her people in sight. She has a need to know where everyone is and displays herding instincts. So, she will run to the door or to the truck, which she loves to ride in with her person. Neeley is housetrained and crate trained. She is trusted with free-run of the house, however separated from her foster-sibling when they are both home alone. Neeley has had only two 'chewing-incidents.' Neeley is already showing signs of athleticism-she loves to jump onto the picnic table [her look-out] and over benches. Baby gates have become indoor agility obstacles. Recently, she was introduced to a water-filled kiddie-pool. At first she didn't know what to make of it, but eventually she decided to jump in, slap at the water with her paws and bite into the water with her mouth. Neeley knows: Sit, Stay, Come, Off [as in, get off/down] and No. She is working on: Up, pretty, Down [as in, lay down] and Shake. Neeley is an eager to please, well-behaved, affectionate, joyful, playful pup. Her favorite toy is her ball, which she loves. She also loves her people. To apply to be Neeley's co-pilot, jogging partner, ball thrower, and cuddler extraordinaire, contact Potter's Angels Rescue.

Pit Bull Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    This Jasmine is more fitting of the Urban Dictionary definition: A beautiful unique girl who is incredibly fun and wise; loud and lots of spunk. Jasmine arrive in Vermont direct off transport with her two-3-week-old pups in tow. Rescued from a southern shelter, placed on transport with many other dogs, shuttled over a thousand miles to Vermont and taken from transport by her foster mom some 6 weeks ago; a frightening experience for any mom. Today her foster mom describes her as an awesome mom, very nurturing and loving to her pups. She said watching her raise her pups was an incredible process; A very curious and sensitive mom! Jasmine is ... (Read More)a 2-year-old, 35 pound, pit-retriever mix. She is up to date on her vaccines, has been spayed and micro-chipped. Jasmine has no medical issues nor is she taking any medications. Jasmine is a medium energy girl who is house and crate trained; she alerts to go out and has freedom of movement throughout the day while sleeping in her crate at night. She walks well on a leash and knows the commands; sit, come and crate. She gets along with other dogs and cats only wanting to play. Taking an interest in birds she is easily redirected. Jasmine has not had the opportunity to socialized with kids of any age yet. If you are in search of your forever friend, your flower, a joyful, playful, well-behaved, affectionate, eager to please pup, Jasmine could be your girl!

PIease Read Before Adopting a Pit Bull in Vermont
    Pit Bull Dogs can make good pets in Vermont if they match your IifestyIe. The American Pit Bull Terrier is a powerful dog with an undeserved reputation for inherent viciousness. A Pit Bull that receives attention, firm training, and thorough socialization makes a wonderful family guardian that is trustworthy with children. Pit Bulls need committed, experienced owners that exude leadership. Pit Bulls excel at high level obedience with proper training. Pit Bulls have been bred for dog fights, and unfortunately a dog that is abused, neglected, or whose instinctive aggression is encouraged, can become hostile and dangerous. Pit Bulls can adapt to apartment life with enough exercise.
